in michigan, and he is set to deliver a speech in downtown detroit. it should serve as a preview to his big thursday night speech on job creation. i'm joined mou live by the mayor of lancing, michigan. mr. mayor, thank you for joining me. >> my pleasure. >> what are your expectations for the president's visit to your state? >> well, look, we're happy -- always happy to have him in michigan to see what's actually happening on the ground. you know, we're grateful for his action in saving the auto industry, which is going strong. that's an investment in gm and chrysler that is paying back. that's what is saving us in lancing. our manufacturings sector is -- it's coming -- barrelling back, and it's a reminder that we need to put the p in gdp. the reality is you have to make things in america. that's the problem. it's the outsourcing and the off shoring that is practically killing the economy. we need a main street agenda. what i am hoping to hear from the president is his willingness to go even further. the transportation thing, yeah, that's important. we need to put the p back in gdp. we need
by the gentleman from new york, mr. reed, as the proponent and the gentleman from michigan, mr. levin, as the opponent. the chair recognizes the gentleman from new york. mr. reed: i yield myself such time as i may consume. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. reed: madam speaker, i also ask unanimous consent that all members may have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on the subjectle of bill under consideration. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. . mr. reed: madam speaker, i am pleased to offer this resolution of disapproval of the request from the president of the united states to borrow an additional $1.5 trillion. dealing with this national debt is one of the primary reasons why i ran for congress. it is to stop the endless borrowing of washington, d.c., on the backs of our children and our grandchildren. i am also pleased to offer it in the house as a demonstration of a commitment to ending the decades' old borrow and spend practices and mentality that runs rampant here in washington. our national
him. the other straw poll was in michigan. mitt romney blew everyone away there with 51% of the vote. perry got just 17%. romney, by the way, is from michigan and he won the state's primary in 2008. >>> two americans will be waking up in the united states this morning after they were freed in iran. josh fattal and shane bauer stepped off a plane in new york. they were arrested in iran in 2009 after allegedly hiking over the border from iraq. they told reporters they were hostages, not prisoners. held in almost complete isolation. >> from the very start the only reason we have been held hostage is because we are american. >> every time we complained about our conditions, the guards would immediately remind us of comparable conditions at guantanamo bay, remind us of cia prisons in other parts of the world and conditions iranians experience in prisons in u.s. >> the two talked about how they heard the screams of other inmates and what they called a total sham of a trial. >>> let's head to atlanta now and economic in with meteorologist reynolds wolf is in today. >> you never know exactly
new. here in michigan, obviously, it's been very hard hit in large part because of the auto industry. the white house, clearly, picked the gm headquarters to talk a little bit about the auto bailouts which they believe saved thousands of jobs. and the unemployment rate in this state has dropped. two summers ago it was over 14%. now it's 10.9%. but, obviously, still far worse than the national average, still very dangerous politically for a president who's facing re-election. i should note as well that some of the union officials, the labor crowd, the president also trying to rev up his political operation heading into 2012. the teamster president, jimmy hoffa jr., was speaking a couple moments ago and saying we'll remember in november who's with the working people. he was chiding republicans, specifically named the tea party, and then his language got a lot stronger, and pardon my language as i repeat it. he said of the tea party and republicans, quote, let's take these sons of bitches out. it got some cheers here from the crowd in detroit. megyn: i just want to make sure we understa
michigan. [ laughter ] but i say if the president is so desperate for his speech to get our attention, last night, this night, it don't matter. to reach the unemployed he needs to deliver it when the unemploy ready watching tv. at 3:00 a.m. right after a slap-chop infomerical. by the way, i partially blame the slap chop for this unemployment crisis. it chops, dices and minces! that's three jobs it killed! [ laughter ] folks, better yet, the president should just work his message in to the programming that's already on at that hour. jim? >> are you constantly strug well your strap? >> right now there are folks struggling. >> when you wear a turtle neck you look like this? >> democracy isn't always pretty. there's got to be a better way. >> we've proven we can come together to solve problems. >> introducing the all new genie bra. >> that's how we'll meet this challenge. >> that sleek sillo wet. this is the perfect bra for me. >> that's the spirit we need to harness it. >> barack obama's bras and jobs. order now. [cheers and applause] wow, our economy already seems fuller, perkier and more con
been very useful to democrats in michigan. in the auto industry. so, initially, you have this sort of sense of acquiescence by democrats that, all right, we don't normally offset emergency funding, but to get this through and to avoid another big fight, we're going to do it. but then democrats seemed to sense an opening. there was a newly combative attitude coming out of the white house thaw referred to earlier, and they decided to hold the line on their troops, and they voted against the c.r. in the house, sending the original, in the original vote it we want down to defeat. republicans rallied. they made cosmetic changed to get their people on board. and then the senate, which had been expected to sort of swallow whatever came over from the house, decide that had they would get their back up and that they would block, which they did. so now we're supposed to have a vote on the democrat i go version, which provides extra money in disaster relief without cutting the loan program or the other things that republicans threw in, but that's expected to fail as well. so over the weekend,
be much more difficult for governor perry to put into play. michigan being one of them. i mean, governor romney is one of his home state, place where his dad was governor, three-term governor, place where he has a really great connection to. if we can put a couple of those states like michigan, wisconsin, put indiana back into play, that's going to make the map a very, very difficult for this white house. >> when it comes to the primary campaign, though, there's been some speculation about how serious you guys are going to compete in iowa. how serious you're going to compete in iowa. >> we're going to play in iowa. the governor will be back there several times campaigning. there will be debates in iowa where we'll be competing in all those debates. this race is -- one thing we've seen, it is a very fluid race and we've seen numbers bouncing around all over the place. we're going to be available and ready to campaign at any state and in order to get the nomination. >> you brought up the general election. i want to play this ad that you guys have out on perry this morning and ask you about
and in michigan rick snyder, new republican governor passed sweeping reforms that will affect every kid in the school system in detroit. this is something to me that the millennials get implicitly and i think we need to start really looking at mountaintops when we have the next opportunity which will be in the next presidential election cycle. the other issue that ranks highly is the environment. i argue in my book we need to make a strong case for conservative environmentalism. the republican party has a pretty good history of environmentalism. teddy roosevelt, richard nixon, we can talk about climate change and acknowledge that climate change is happening but is also an inexact science. we know the cover of newsweek in 1975 showed that the globe was going to freeze over. we can acknowledge and talk about it in a reasonable way without embracing the left's solutions which would be -- levee enormous tax burdens for energy consumption. and frankly only reduce carbon emissions in the united states by a minimal amount without touching in the end china. so i think the deal with conservative
polls. herman cain won the florida, mitt romney in michigan. brit hume examines the republican field. grapevine, you'll never guess who some republicans would like to see run for president. "special report" starts at 6:00 eastern. now back to new york and my colleagues, at "the five." ♪ ♪ >> dana: welcome back to "the five." 2012 news now. though donald trump is not running he is keeping himself involved in the race as much as he can. a little while ago, romney met with the donald. here is what mr. trump had to say about that. >> we had a great hour together. he expressed certain feelings i didn't even know where he was coming from. i was impressed with things he said. i want a great president. it'd love obama to be a great president. i'd be happy whether i'm a republican or democrat, it doesn't matter. i would love to see obama finish offgly and do a great job. >> dana: so mitt romney this past weekend won the michigan straw poll. we talked about the florida tra poll earlier where herman cain won. a point i want to make in the last five weeks there have been five straw polls and
-- that is a look at "the wall street journal" headlined as women. taking a look as we take the next call. michigan, a cafe, a democrat. caller: i can give you an example of taxes. i am going to be cashing out of my retirement. it is very little, from the state of michigan. 30% between the irs and the federal tax and then i am probably going to be penalized for drawing unemployment -- illegal in the state of michigan. what it will do is amount to 50% tax. the current job that i have -- there are a lot of people will come into the store and buying, and a majority of them are well- to-do. if my employer is what to do. she does not share her wealth. i do not see any poor people coming into the store purchasing anything. and i will be heading off a bank to a food pantry in an hour and a half and i don't see what the people at the food pantry, either. -- will see people at the food pantry. -- wealthy people of the food pantry. there are a lot of well-to-do people in the county and i don't see any philanthropy to the most part. we need to close the loops. in terms of other countries, at the very least th
these american soldiers returning home from wars overseas. this from michigan: >> what's it like right now, just to finally have him in your arms? >> it's amazing, it's awesome. you know, being over there, i just tried not to think about it, because i had a mission to do, so actually being home now, being home, you know, kind of hard to describe. so i'm just really happy. bill: that's the picture of the day, isn't it? look at that. national guard troops in michigan just finishing a seven-month deployment in the war. martha: all right. this is not so great. we've got those bad jobs numbers that came in from august, zero jobs added in the month of august, and add one group in america, black americans, struggling to find work is really a standout in terms of the bad situation here. mike tobin is live on that for us in chicago. hi mike. >> reporter: hi martha. you mentioned the zero job growth and national unemployment figure, but they only get worse among african-americans. if you look at the number of black americans unemployed, that figure is about 17 percent, the unemployment figures are a litt
, educated at the university of michigan. has written several books, a long list of books. .uest: keeps me busy host: democrat, good morning. caller: i have one question that i keep hearing over and over again from republicans, the tax as corporations pay, if we could just get it down. i would like to know from the man from heritage, the name of a company, just one, that actually pays 35% in taxes after deductions in loop holes. i want an aim of one company. if you cannot give me the name of one company, everything you say is disingenuous. host: put you on the spot here. guest: i think she actually has a good point. if you are -- there are different carve-outs and deductions that get stuck in it the tax code. the actual effective rate is closer to 18%. you are paying the full rate, more or less. it acts as a disincentive to job growth. speaker boehner and president obama said that one of the things they would like to do is motivate the tax rate, the highest in the industrialized world, but eliminate these deductions and credits so that there are fewer barriers for companies. host: we will
culture and this is the rhetoric -- you saw my michigan speech. is this embarrassing for the president? >> just last year. >> no indication. no indication yet. >> he didn't call it out. >> he called them out afterwards. >> they have no comment. >> so what happened? >> financier and morning joe. >> in washington, speaking of sexy, pat buchanan joins us. >> all right. >> to answer your question, i know, we've got the chairman of the tea party demanding immediate apology. >> what happen? what happened there? >> well, we had some very, very, very harsh words by the president of the teamsters union that i think there are worse ones being used there than sobs. >> like what? >> let's launch into the news. teamsters union, president jim hoffa warming up the crowd before the labor day speech in detroit taking that at the tea party that we played to you coming in to the show, the chairwoman of the tea party wants an apology from hoffa. she said this -- jimmy hoffa's remarks are inexcusable and amount to a call for violence on peaceful tea party members which include many teamster members. the wh
of people didn't like. >> especially michigan. michigan is a state up for grabs theoretically, you know, and that commercial resonates for me. >> i watch that commercial. >> i actually walked through the ford plant in michigan in -- with the ceo of ford and said why don't you run an ad about, you know, you didn't take the bailout. >> you're the reason. >> this is your idea! >> he said no, the american people understand that. literally said that a year and a half ago. here we are a year and a half forward and they put this ad together, charlie, they put this ad together, there's no doubt that they had the intention of running this ad. you don't put the ad together, put it out there and yank it quickly unless they get pressure from somebody. >> clearly, i would like to know who pressured them. that person should be pressured to resign. this takes it a little too far. we're in the middle of -- we're ramping up to the election, clearly they don't want this -- anything to prevent the president from losing -- losing michigan. michigan is a key state. if the republicans win that state, think
romney this past weekend won the michigan straw poll. we talked about the florida tra poll earlier where herman cain won. a point i want to make in the last five weeks there have been five straw polls and a different person won each. cain, santorum, bachmann. do straw polls matter? >> no, they don't matter. romney won in won of his home state is a big piece of political news there. i don't understand why he went up there. you can race more money in the presidential campaigns. i've done it. in straw polls chasing things that are meaningless. this thing in florida is meaningless in a week. the g.o.p. chairman ought to be meaningless in a week. can i talk about donald trump? he is a nice guy. but why we give attention to this guy, why the people are -- if he is giving them a lot of money i understand why you see him. >> dana: i don't think he is. >> bob: then why do it? >> bob: he gets media attention. his voice has some weight. >> kimberly: i agree. >> bob: why? he might as well come to see you. >> dana: that would be great. >> kimberly: come on down. >> greg: like the weird soccer parent
two hours to him. it's over he's basically saying. >> and things didn't get better in michigan. >> nope. mitt romney was the big winner there taking 50% of the vote, perry came in second, nearly 17%, followed by herr main cain with 8.5% support. >> why does this matter? you know, mr. chairman, why this matters. this terrible run in september for rick perry. as this terrible launch has a direct impact on how much money he's going to raise and what he's going to report at the end of this quarter. and i've got to believe that's going to be really dented in by this horrific week or two that perry's had. >> oh, absolutely. you've already begun to hear some of the operatives and the donors say, well, let me take a look. and that's something, joe and mika, that i think a lot of republican establishment types have yet to understand about the dynamics of this race. and i've talked about it a number of times that the system is designed this year, especially, to allow for rick santorum or herman cain the opportunity to express themselves. an unsteady still searching kind of base that allo
the great depression when workers rose up in my town of flint, michigan, where the modern day union movement began because people just took over the gm factories. this is what happens when people have had it. and it's not -- it's not about policy wonkness and beltway bull shit -- nobody wants to, nobody cares about that anymore. they are just going to descend on whether it's new york, whether it's in d.c., whether it's in los angeles, san francisco, this is just going to build and build. and you're going to see what i see here -- i don't think your family probably can't pick this up. you see a variety of americans here. you see really the mosaic of this country. you have young people here. you have senior citizens here. you have teachers here. you have nurses here. you have unemployed people here. you have young people who will be paying off student loans until their 40s. and if they lived in any other western democracy, they wouldn't be in hawk for half of their adult lives. this is -- i thought somebody put it best the other day when they said, the main reason people are down here is to re
, north dakota, steelman missouri, mandel in ohio, hofstra in michigan, burn in pennsylvania. chaise in connecticut and thompson or somebody else in wisconsin that's 12. that brings you to 59. then, if we can find strong candidates in any of the following five states, we could do it: maryland against cardin, minnesota, west virginia against manchin. new jersey against menendez and washington state against cantwell. there's a reason to believe in each of those states we could do well. we almost won washington last time. christie won in new jersey. we came within a breath of winning west virginia last time. minnesota, you know how close that was in the franken race. i think that obama is so dragging down the democratic party to defeat, 15 to 20 points if the election were held now. that we really have a shot at 60. >> sean: even california -- first the new york 9, it was a dramatic result in a very important part of the state of nevada. california three out of four californians are not happy with the job he's doing, especially on economics. something has shifted. i noticed in the presi
39,000 jobs in california, delaware, illinois, indiana, kentucky, ohio, michigan, missri, and tennessee. some have suggested that this program has been slow to spend emergency funding provided in the f.y. 2009 c.r. i say the loan review process is and ought to be strenuous. one company, tesla, originally applied under a different loan program in 2006 and received an atvm loan in 2010. it requires four years of due diligence to review to qualify for the loan and having read many of the press releases that went out when there was another d.o.e. program that was not -- that had ran into difficulties, i didn't note anybody there saying we shouldn't take time for due diligence. due diligence is required. by the way, the company in questi, tess la, employed -- tesla, employed about 400 workers before reiving the loan. today they have 1,400 employees in the fields of engineering, research and development, design, manufacturing, assembly, maintenance, service, sales, and support. the atvm program has an additional 18 loan applications in progress that are projected to create 50,0

surveys of confidence and the ones that i tend to follow most frequently is the michigan survey. the michigan survey has gone down in terms of showing consumer confidence and keeps going down. it correlates a little bit with some of the actions in congress. there was a sense maybe that one of the dip in consumer confidence had to do with the impasse over the debt ceiling and some of the wrangling in congress. you would maybe think that effect would be diminished now in people's minds. we have not seen a big resurgence of confidence. confidence is important because monetary policy works through the development and setting of expectations. if you have a sense that things are going to be bad and are going to stay bad and are never going to return to the way of life that you have come to expect, you will engage in denver kinds of behaviors. you may not spend if you have a sense that you're going to lose your jobs or your income is not going to go up. it may affect how you make your spending decisions. you can see in that scenario that confidence could be at such a low that they coul

[ cheers and applause ] >> you know, firing those air traffic controllers, i'm pro union, was what sent the word to moscow this guy was real. >> yeah. >> i absolutely know that as a fact. it got over there. they said, he has steel in his spine, look out. i think when i met reagan one time, i was working for speaker o'neill and weren't exactly in friendly territory. i felt i was meeting jimmy cagney, not jimmy stewart. i think that jimmy cagney, don't touch the gutter, little tough guy from the street, you've got it. it's what people like in the fighter they got on their side. >> if you look at opening of the debate last night when they paraded the seven dwarves and the candidates come out. perry's body -- literally his chest is stuck out. he's like this. he's ready for a fight. i just think republicans, they don't -- the mitt romney, doesn't matter what he says. romney did a great job last night. romney tries to finds itght, ite when obama tries to fight. it's not who he is. once again, who is the one republican president of the last several dec
michigan, across the midwest and in the south? >> well, the same things were asked of the republicans when we won a special election in one of the most republican districts in the united states in upstate new york. look, the fact of the matter is that they stole one from us in downstate new york and it's not the end of the world for us just as we stole one from them in upstate new york and it wasn't the end of the world for them. special elections are not predictive, john. let me give you one statistic. in 2006 we lost every single competitive special election and democrats won the house of representatives. in 2010, we won every single competitive special election and we lost control of the house of the representatives. they are moments in time. they are not predictive of trends. >> you don't think this means anything then, just one loss even though democrats have held this seat for 90 years? >> look, it was a tough loss. you know, i wish we had won. i'm not going to minimize it. i'm not going to sugarcoat it. >> but what happened? >> it was a loss based on a confluence of events, a perfec
